Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is still struggling with an injury despite playing in the Champions League final and representing his country in the AFCON qualifiers.

The 30-year-old, who played a staggering 51 games for the Reds last season, sustained an injury in the first-half of the Reds FA Cup victory over Chelsea in May.

The forward was then left out of their next Premier League match and then only played 32 minutes of their final day of the season win over Wolves.

Egypt international doctor Mohamed Abou El Ela has since admitted that Salah was still nursing that same injury one month on, when he linked up with the national squad over the international break.

Speaking to on Time Sports, he said:

Salah’s injury occurred during the FA Cup final in the adductor muscles, then he played against Wolves and in the Champions League final, and all of this in just 14 days.

We read a statistic that he’s the second-highest player in terms of minutes played this season.

We send and receive players with medical reports, and Liverpool’s said that he had pain and should get an x-ray, there’s not a 100% fit player, but there’s the question of whether he can push himself and play without risk.

Liverpool will be hoping the star will be fit when the first-team return for pre-season training on July, 4.

The Egyptian winger won the Golden Boot last season with 23 league goals and was a key part of a double-winning Liverpool side.

He also won a range of other individual awards, including PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year.
